My 86 year old husband in rehab after a total hip replacement. Just hours after he left the hospital, his doctor called and said that his scan showed a 19x15m nodule in his lower left lung and wants to do a biopsy. He has been a smoker for over 70 years, has had melanoma on both arms, and served in the South Pacific during WWII. In checking on websites (yes, I know a little knowledge is a dangerous thing) it seems like most things are against him . . . his age, medical history and occupation. Since he is in rehab I have no idea how soon the biopsy can be done. I suppose it depends on his physical therapy progress. Does anyone have any similar stories that could give me any information?
